C5 Corvette Parts

C5 Corvette Banner 1997 to 2004

The C5 Chevrolet Corvette was the fifth generation of the Chevrolet Corvette sports car produced by General Motors from 1997 through 2004.

The C5 generation was a major change from its predecessor, the C4. This generation featured a hydro-formed box frame which improved the structural platform of the sports car. The transmission was relocated to form an integrated, rear-mounted transaxle assembly. The transmission was connected to the all-new LS1 engine via a torque tube. The positioning of the engine and transmission enabled a proportional front-rear weight distribution. The LS1 engine initially produced 345 hp and increased in 2001 to 350 hp. The 4L60-E automatic transmission was carried over from previous models, but the manual transmission was replaced by a Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed capable of a 175 mph. In comparison to the C4, the new platform and structural design changes significantly reduced squeaks and rattles.

Originally, the C5 Corvette was only available in a coupe model. The convertible option became available one year later in 1998. In 1999, a third body style, the hardtop, became part of the C5 line up.
